OVERVIEW

Derived from the Vienna style, Märzen and Oktoberfest beers can offer similar flavors and feel. Known as Märzenbier, German for “March beer,” this German lager was developed in the 1840s, before refrigeration. It was traditionally brewed in the spring and stored in cool cellars for consumption over the warmer summer months. Remaining supplies of Märzenbier were then consumed during Oktoberfest celebrations. The color ranges from clear, deep gold to orange-red, with a foamy, off-white head. Vienna and/or Munich malts contribute to the darker hue and characteristic toasty malt sweetness of Oktoberfest beers, and background Noble hop bitterness keeps them from being cloying. With malt character potentially rich and complex, the best Oktoberfest beer exhibits a clean, smooth lager character. While some are available year-round, most beers of this style are only available seasonally to ring in the fall months.

Lagers represent some of the most approachable, easy-drinking beer styles available, which contributes to Lager’s consumption edge over ale, despite the fact that ale styles are more numerous and were consumed thousands of years before lagering and cold-aging took hold.
